Matt is an excellent instructor, his knowledge includes many musical genres. As a beginning bass guitar adult student without any musical training after only a few lessons, I can honestly say that I see growth in my abilities. I highly recommend Matt!

Matt is an awesome instructor. After the first lesson I was able to play a couple of solos with a backing track. Matt has a passion to see his students improve their guitar playing and is always encouraging in his feedback.

Matt is exactly the teacher I was looking for. He is highly competent, knowledgeable, experienced and knows all guitar styles you can think of. He is passionate about what he does, is reliable & serious, and adjust to your schedule. He actively seeks feedback, listen to it and acts on it to make sure I have the best learning experience. Works out very well for me, and I have been working with him for >1 year now

I have been taking lessons with Matthew a little over a month and I can tell you that not only is he a great musician but a great teacher. Matt's teaching style and approach is extremely logical, practical, challenging, and fun. He has a evaluated my level of playing and is tailoring his lesson plans for the long term. I am learning exactly what I have always wanted to learn but was never able to get there on my own. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a great teacher and looking to take there playing to the next level to contact Matt...

Not just an accomplished guitarist but an actual teacher. Very adaptive but actually has a sense of scope and sequence to his instruction which, in my experience, is tough to find in a guitar teacher outside of college level instruction. Can really teach authentic rock, blues, and jazz styles.
